This is an old clock tower in the historic centre of Mestre. Unfortunately we visited on a Sunday and it was closed. Pity. Still it was nice to view from outside.

There are not many activities in Maestre but coming to the square and seeing the clock tower and other activities is quite entertaining. The better food establishments are off the side streets - the good near here is a bit over priced.
